We here at the UHub Legal Desk know that many of you are sick to death of reading our endless accounts of said candidate's repeated attempts to have a judge order Secretary of State Bill Galvin tossed into a volcano, almost as much as you're tired of reading about somebody suing over the lack of butter in some company's sticks of butter, but bear with us for just a couple moments longer.
Last week, in writing about how the candidate had been banned forever and ever amen by Twitter, we noted how he had filed Yet Another Very Legal Motion demanding a judge in Boston federal court hold off on ordering Galvin pushed into a volcano only long enough to immediately force Galvin to give Twitter a virtual wedgie until Twitter restores the Real Indian's Twitter account, and then personally declared the Father of Email the winner of the September Republican primary, rather than the alleged loser who was declared the winner.
Today, Galvin, by way of two assistant state attorneys general, filed his reply, which, in non-legal terms, is similar to the one given by that American general at the Battle of the Bulge: Nuts.
Of course, lawyers are rarely that economic with their words, so assistant AGs Adam Hornstine and Anne Sterman devoted 23 pages, including a one-page table of contents, to explaining just how wrong even a man with multiple degrees from MIT, albeit none of them in law, given that MIT doesn't have a law school, can be.
And that doesn't even include the discussions of how the judge can't force Twitter to do anything since it's not a party to the suit, how the First Amendment rights of both the Secretary of State (yes, Bill Galvin has First Amendment rights) and Twitter come into play and why the Eleventh Amendment might wish to have a word with the plaintiff, who ditched his lawyer a few months ago and his been rapid-filing his own motions ever since.
The next step is up to US District Court Judge Mark Wolf, who has to either schedule a hearing on the candidate's latest legal request, never mind his two pending lawsuits, or just say: Enough already.
